Symbolism and the Lindisfarne Cosmic Harp:
The Cosmic Harp (once located at Lindisfarne in Southampton) is a synchronicity arising from the lecturer’s researches into the connections between the hexagrams of the I Ching and the Enneagram symbol which was brought to the West from the Middle East by G.I. Gurdjieff. The tape discloses how the Cosmic Harp came into existence and, in addition, offers some insight into the value of symbolism. Author William Irwin Thompson is founder of the Lindisfarne Association.
The Lindisfarne Tapes are selected recordings of presentations and conversations at the Lindisfarne Fellows’ meetings. In March of 2013 William Thompson granted permission to the Schumacher Center for a New Economics to transfer the talks from the old reel-to-reel tapes to digital format so that they could be posted online and shared freely. Reposting should include acknowledgment of williamirwinthompson.org.
